Beware the Omicron BA.2 variant. BA for B.A. Baracus!

I pity the fool!

The Omicron BA.2 sub-variant, which has been increasingly detected across Europe and Asia in recent days, has also been found in small numbers in the U.S.

Experts say that it’s too soon to speculate on exactly what sort of risk BA.2 poses in comparison to the more dominant Omicron type, BA.1.

Last week, the sub-variant was classified as a variant under investigation by the U.K.’s Health Security Agency (HSA), while figures released from Denmark suggested BA.2 was responsible for nearly half of all the cases reported there.
